Breakdown of Single Family Homes, Zero Lots & Condos Sold in Tiffin IA Jan - Dec 2011

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Cardinal Realty ~ 319-400-0268

Tiffin is the last of the communities I cover to get a break down in home sales for 2011. Not too many homes sell in Tiffin in a year so it's not as telling as in the bigger communities - Iowa CityCoralville and North Liberty. New construction is as popular as ever with buyers making Tiffin an area worth watching with lots of land for sale and plenty of new construction going up. It will be interesting to see how the real estate market shapes up in Tiffin in the next few years. I'm sure we'll see some major changes in the housing market in Tiffin once the economy gets back on its feet again.

Single family home sales were up 33% in Tiffin in 2011. 28 homes sold in 2011 compared to 21 in 2010. Zero lot sales were down and condo sales about the same as last year. The following link takes you to a post with info on the months homes sold in Tiffin in 2011. (Knowing when homes sold is a good way to get insight on the much searched for question "when is the best time to put my home on the market?")

Hi Kymberly ~ The funny thing is that just before I posted this I left a comment on another post about just how important market reports are for me. Yes I get business from them, but equally important is the fact that through all the research I'm totally on top of what's going on in my market.

Hi Laura ~ Thanks for stopping by, I appreciate the feedback.

Corinne ~ Hah. As you know now, Tiffin is less than 10 minutes west of Coralville, which ultimately means folks in Tiffin live in a smaller rural community with real easy access to everything they need in Coralville. The Clear Creek Amana Middle School and High School are both in Tiffin, which is definitely a pull for buyers.
